Cristina Canale @ Nara Roesler Gallery, Chelsea
Because I see so many exhibitions of Latin American art, and because I've decided to devote a section of my blog to covering it as a topic, I'm just going to dive in today with a post of this one painting by Brazilian artist Cristina Canale (b. 1961), who is having her first solo exhibition in the US at Nara Roseler Gallery. The title in Portuguese is A origem da vida (amanhecer nos trópicos), which translates as the Origin of Life (Awakening of the Tropics), and it's from 2021. The exhibition was curated by Luis Perez-Oramas, and focuses almost entirely on Canale's new work. On view through October 30.
